Mark Ryan The Dissident Red Blend 2018
COLUMBIA VALLEY, WASHINGTON
Cabernet Sauvignon (71%) and Merlot (21%) are the heart of this wine, with the rest bits of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The aromas are pulled back, with notes of dried leaf, raspberry, bittersweet chocolate and cherry. The palate is rich, flavorful, focused, layered and lengthy. There’s plenty of enjoyment to be had.
